    This is a video of a red hot ball of nickel being placed on a Nokia 3310 brick phone. It catches fire immediately, presumably because there was no SIM card installed. You gotta install that SIM card. I actually used to have one of those phones. I dropped it so many times an... / Continue →

    This is a video of a red-hot ball of nickel melting a block of floral foam. For those of you who didn't take a floral design course in college with your then-girlfriend, floral foam is a block of green absorbent foam you use to make flower arrangements so the cut stems can sti... / Continue →

    This is a video of a red hot ball of nickel trying to melt its way through a vulcanized rubber hockey puck. In a surprising turn of events (at least for me), the red hot ball of nickel hardly did any damage to the puck (not unlike the red hot ball of nickel vs Nickelodeon GaK)... / Continue →

    This is a video of TheBackyardScientist pouring molten aluminum into a giant lava lamp to see what happens (previously: a watermelon). Just to see what happens is arguably the number one reason for the science experiments I see performed on Youtube. No scientific method, no c... / Continue →

    Because some people get their rocks off by watching balls of red-hot nickel melt through things (previously: an ice block and peanut butter), this is a video of a ball of nickel melting its way through a Rubik's Cube. I'm not sure what the video was supposed to teach us, but I... / Continue →

    This is a how-to video created by Youtuber Grant Thompson - "The King of Random" of how to melt aluminum soda cans, make them into metal biscuits, then recast them into something else (in this case, a sword). Pretty cool. You know what would be even cooler? Melting a soda ca... / Continue →

    This is a small series of Perler bead characters that have been brought to life by Daniel Alba. I wish I had a little Link around to help cut fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables, LOL. I spend zero time in the produce section of the grocery store. You know why? "Be... / Continue →

    This is a worthwhile video of a red-hot ball of nickel quickly melting its way through a block of ice from the same guy who brought us the red-hot nickel in a cup of water video. The sound effects aren't as rad (but are still pretty cool) in this one, but it's awesome to watch... / Continue →

    I posted about turning a loved one's ashes (or anyone you want to dig up and burn, really) into a diamond back in 2009, so this isn't really a new concept. But death diamonds can cost up to $20K, where as dead body beads will only set you back $870, making them the obvious cho... / Continue →

    There comes a time in every young man's life when he receives his first soldering iron. To me, that day feels like it was just yesterday. "That was yesterday -- you f***ing stole it out of my toolbox." Haha -- finders keepers! About 1983, when I was fifteen, I dropped my ... / Continue →

    Not gonna lie, probably wouldn't wave my hand in front of it for less than $20. Seen here looking at least partially constructed out of tin-foil, the Navy has made a breakthrough in the laser department, creating a free-electron laser (FEL) capable of producing a sustained 500... / Continue →

    The Crayola Crayon Maker is a $20 E-Z-Bake oven that melts bits and pieces of old crayons into new, shit-brown colored ones. If you've got kids, you've got crayons. And if you've got crayons, you've probably got a big container of tiny crayon nubs that are even too small for... / Continue →

    I can't count how may hours of my youth were spent having checker wars with plastic army men. And not just because I'm a bad counter, but I did give the bartender $17 for a $62 tab last night. Ha, not tip, in total. Apparently I'm not welcome back there. Anyway, these are p... / Continue →

    Have I ever told you I used to rest my head against the microwave whenever I was cooking something in it growing up? I did? Oh. Well I have trouble forming new memories now. But I do remember the time I dragged an extension cord out to the middle of the backyard and hooked ... / Continue →
